As we all await the new Slipknot album coming this year, let’s take a look at vocalist Corey Taylor‘s new Frankenstein tattoo. The tattoo was done by Shane Munce of PussyKat Tattoo and looks pretty damn realistic! it also looks pretty gross, but I suppose that’s the point of having a Frankenstein tattoo. Plus Taylor is a note horror aficionado, so it’s not really surprising.
“The Backpiece Continues! Mr. Lee by my great friend @shanemunce down at @pusssykattattooparlor puttin up with my ass for 14 years haha! If you want AMAZING work when you’re in Vegas, hit em up!”
If you haven’t already, check out Slipknot‘s so-far one-off single “The Chapeltown Rag” here. Taylor mentioned back in December that he was re-recording one song that he wasn’t happy with for the new record before mixing took place in January, and that percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan was working on the artwork.
“The goal right now — and I don’t wanna talk out of turn — the goal is to get it ready for mix [in] January so we can get it out two or three months after. I have four songs that I have to sing, ’cause I’m redoing one that I wasn’t happy with; I listened to it, and I was, like, ‘I can do that better.’ And honestly, very rarely have I ever had the opportunity to do that. So it’s actually kind of rad that I’m getting a chance to go in and go, ‘You know what? I can beat what I did.’ But that’s gonna take me five days to get that done. ‘Cause I’m gonna do those four songs and then go back through and do punch-up on anything that I’m just not feeling.
“But it’s gonna be very, very little ’cause I’m pretty down with everything that I’ve got. So once that’s done, man, it’s just a matter of having Joe mix it. And I know Clown‘s been working on the artwork. We’re working on a video for… obviously for ‘Chapeltown’, but also probably for whatever the first single’s gonna be. Yeah, it’s just a matter of time before we start getting it together.”
Taylor previously chimed in about the new material, saying the new stuff has “made me start thinking outside my own box and challenging myself.” The new album will be Slipknot‘s final effort for Roadrunner.
